Top Pro Gif Ad
Every Wednesday we give Irish boxers the chance to take the mickey out of their fellow fighters.

This week it is the turn of rising Dublin super featherweight star Deco Geraghty [12(3)-1(0)]

Q: Hardest Trainer?
A: Tom Stalker by far, he leaves nothing undone in the gym. The fella lives and breathes boxing.

Q: Biggest Moaner?
A: It would easily have to be Ryan Lindberg, the fella hated coming to Dublin to train with the Irish team. Never knew anyone could hate Dublin so much. Now it would be Sean Turner, the fella hates anything other than sleeping.

Q: Funniest?
A: I don’t know this fella too personally. but Spike O’Sullivan seems like one funny f*cker on social media.

Q: Biggest Ladies Man?
A: John Hutchison. The bloke loves Tinder. I’d love to know how many Thai children he has running around. Charlie Edwards’s nose is knocked out of place whenever John is over in Marbella.

Q: Most intelligent?
A: For all the years I’ve been boxing, there’s not been that many intelligent boxers! But 2012 Olympian Darren O’Neill would have to be one as he is a primary school teacher. He would talk to me and I wouldn’t have a clue so I would zone out.

Q: Least Intelligent?
A: This is an easy choice, Tom Stalker.

Q: Hardest Puncher?
A: Phil Sutcliffe, he hits like a mule. He can hurt you with a jab.

Q: Most Naturally Talented?
A: There are too many to choose just one. For example Jason Quigley, Joe Ward, Michael Conlan, and also Eric Donovan – he’s got the best footwork I’ve ever seen and was always teacher’s pet.

Q: Cheapest?
A: This fella is as tight as a nun’s legs, he goes by the name Big Sexy. The c*nt still owes me money but I love the bones of him.

Q: Worst Dancer?
A: Back in the day, me, Paddy Barnes and Tyrone McCullagh used to go out and these two lads are by far the worst dancers.

Q: Worst Dress Sense?
A: Anthony Fitzgerald, the bloke is colour blind when he gets dressed.

Q: Biggest Messer?
A: Roy Sheahan, when him and Eric get together, you might as well pack your bags and get away.
